Napoleon Perdis corrals a makeup collection in memory of Elizabeth Taylor


Australian makeup artist Napoleon Perdis, founder of the Napoleon Perdis cosmetics company, counts the late Elizabeth Taylor among his primary beauty inspirations — and now he's corralled a mini-collection of existing beauty staples in his line in homage to the iconic actress and humanitarian.

The "Legendary Liz Taylor Look" collection includes a retro-feeling crimson lipstick, Devine Goddess Lipstick in Xenia ($22); a purple eye shadow, High Voltage Violet ($25), a nod to Taylor's famous violet eyes; and a jet-black liquid liner, Neo Noir Eyeliner ($20), a beauty item that always feels very silver screen.

“Elizabeth Taylor's style epitomized that Old Hollywood glamour," said Perdis, "and she’s been the driving influence behind many of my campaigns and collections. Her arresting violet eyes, signature alluring red lips and strong brows captivated the world. She always knew the power of a sultry winged eye liner.”

He could at least have spelled it right; it's "Divine" not Devine...but I know, he's trying to be 'special' with the spelling...

I should think her estate lawyers would be all over this; using her name without, I am assuming, anyone in the family's permission!!!

I'm a retired makeup artist and any makeup artist worth their salt KNOWS you never wear eyeshadow that matches your eye color - even if they are violet!!!!!!!! Trashy, to say the least.........

all in all, just another wannabe trying to cash in on a lovely lady's name!!!

Estate lawyers, where are you??????
